Watson 100 film loader - looking for part

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to make this query

I just acquired a Watson 100 bulk film loader primarily for loading my IXMOO cartridges. Unfortunately it does not contain the grey plastic shim that sits on the inside of the crank handle - this is used for standard (non Leica) film cartridges. Even though I am now set up for the IXMOOs (you have to remove this shim to use the IXMOOs effectively) I would still like to fill standard/contemporary cartridges. Anyone out there with a spare shim or could someone give me the dimensions (including thickness & diameter of circle) as I could attempt to make one from cardboard or even a 3D printer job. Thanks in advance

The spacer is about 2 mm thick and the hole 9 mm diameter. I don’t think the shape will make much difference, you could just use anything as a washer/spacer.

Yes indeed!! I thought more about it after I posted this  & considered trying washers -  2 washers looked just right then just spied your supportive post - many thanks for the dimensions - does the 2mm include the total thicknness (including the ring too)
